In Tondabayashi Jinaimachi historic district and its neighborhood, the annual "Spring Hina Meguri Dolls Festival ” as a spring part of Jinaimachi four seasons story is held on the second Saturday and following Sunday in March, which has become a tradition of the spring of Jinaimachi town and is co-organized by Jinaimachi four seasons story Executive Committee and Jinaimachi Culture Trust.

As the 10th anniversary, it is to be held from 10:00 to 16:00 on Saturday, March 12 and Sunday, March 13 in 2016, rain or shine. Elegant kimono-dressed dolls have been decorated and displayed along the streets in Tondabayashi Jinaimachi historic district and at the gate of Koushouji Betsuin Buddhist Temple facing
the Jyounomonsuji street.

In Jinaimachi, Tondabayashi, which has been only designated in Osaka prefecture, Japan as an important preservation district for historic buildings in group of the country, the beautiful townscape of temples and merchants’ residences built in Edo era have been preserved. The townscape has been not only preserved but also utilized as various kinds of shops and spaces which receive visitors, thanks to the efforts and cooperation by those who love the town deeply. 

“The Jinaimachi four seasons stories” have been conducted in each season as collaborative events by utilizing local resources of the historic townscape and various shops which old town houses were retrofitted into and the “dolls festival” celebrates the coming spring in Jinaimachi. 

You can come across various dolls while enjoying walk since as many as almost 100 dolls decorations are displayed in private houses, shops and the town corners. Those dolls are decorated in various styles or some valuable dolls inherited from generation to generation are displayed, or some may be displayed in an unexpected place. On the occasion, a tea party or special product sales are jointly held.

Koushouji Betsuin Temple (Tondabayashi Gobo)

Koushouji Betsuin Temple is a temple of Jodo Shinshu School (Ikkoushuu School), which became the center of the development and establishment of Jinaimachi town in Tondabayashi . It has been popular as Mr. Gobo (Tondabayashi Gobo) among the local residents.

During the Ouei period (1394-1412years) , theincipient temple was opened in Ebitani village. In 1560, Shoushuu Shonin, the 16th head priest of Koushouji Sect. in Kyoto dismantled the building and reconstructedit to the present location, adjacent to Ebitani village.

The temple gate looks toward the east and the Jyounomon-suji street. Those buildings such as the bell tower, the drum tower, the main hall, the reception hall and priest's quarters are set up and arranged.

The main gate has refined style and it became clear in a recent investigation that the gate was further relocated from Koushouji temple in Kyoto, which was originally said to be dismantled and reconstructed from one of the gates at Fushimi castle in Kyoto.

Koushouji Betsuin Temple was designated as an important cultural property of the country in 2014.


The former residence of the Sugiyama family, an important cultural property of the country

Sugiyama family was one of the old family who was involved in the founding of Jinaimachi town and the family flourished as a sake brewer throughout the Edo period.

The former Sugiyama family residence is the oldest building among those merchants’ houses in Jinaimachi and it is the remains of a large merchant house of the mid-Edo period.

The residence is the birthplace of Ms. Tsuyuko Isonokami, a female poet of Myojo school (Her autonym was Takako Sugiyama, 1882ー1959).

The property was designated as an important cultural property of the country on October 26, 1983 as a typical architecture of merchant’s house which was originated from farmer's house in Minami-Kawachi region.
